    Abstract

    Acute lead poisoning caused by ingestion of lead shot was diagnosed in two young racing pigeons that had been feeding on a meadow where lead shot was available. One bird showing a blood level of 7000 µg/l lead died despite calcium disodium EDTA treatment, while the other was saved.
